Web application firewall (WAF) is an application firewall that filters, monitors and blocks HTTP traffic as they travel to and from the web applications. The WAF is installed as a hardware appliance, virtual appliance or cloud based that runs directly on web servers. It monitors all HTTP requests and analyzes them before they reach the web server for being processed. It examines the GET and POST method while applying distinct rules to recognize and filter out illegitimate traffic. Other security solutions such as Intrusion Detection System (IDS), network firewalls and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) can stop the illegal traffic and provide the network security. However, they are not equipped to detect and stop session hijacking, SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS).
